Whatever the immediate and long-term outcome with the Colorado City Post Office is, there are several things that seem to have made themselves pretty evident over the course of the last several months:

1.) The Post Office is very important to all of us. It has certainly generated lots of discussion, some of it very intense. Thank you, Lou, for providing all of those years of uninterrupted service to Colorado City, and enjoy your retirement.

2.) The Colorado City Post Office isnít as important to the United States Post Office. The USPS lost $3.9 billion last year, perhaps we havenít been doing our share or perhaps our limited number of patrons does not seem to register on the radar strongly enough. Like many of you I would love if it could be assimilated by the Rye Post Office because Darlene and her people do a top-notch job but, apparently, there arenít enough boxes up in Rye to take care of the people in Colorado City.

3.) Like many of you I investigated the list of requirements to take over the post office and a number of things in the initial offering seemed to make it difficult. It indicated that the owner of the building had to be involved in the operation (again thank you, Lou), it indicated a certain number of square feet was required, and that the financial part of the proposal was all based on commission. Now I may be off on a little of this because I looked over the stuff the USPS sent out. I didnít begin an open application.
